  • Work with expert assessors such as psychologists who will help to inform planning

  • Attend core groups, review panels and conferences

  • Work with internal partners such as Family Support, Youth Offending


The team will work with approximately 120 children, and social work caseloads will be capped at between 18-20


You will have weekly supervision with the Team Manager who will be overseeing the project and will be on hand to provide support and advice.

The team will also be supported by two family support workers who will work alongside Social Workers to deliver direct work where this is required
